Does insurance cover damage from someone putting sugar in your gas tank?

"Would insurance cover someone putting sugar in my gas tank? It caused a huge amount of damage and repair bills are going to be $3,000. I have full coverage, but I'm worried my claim won't be approved."

Answer
“Since you have full coverage, your insurance should cover this. It will likely be classified as vandalism and filed under your comprehensive insurance.
You will still be required to pay your deductible, but your insurance will cover whatever is left of the $3,000 bill.
If you’re concerned about your coverage, you can reach out to your car insurance company directly. An agent will be able to help clarify what will be covered.”
